Study Volunteer Testimonials
To date over 106,000 people have joined the movement for more birthdays by enrolling in this historic study.
With their help and participation in this study, we will continue our work to eliminate cancer as a major health concern for future generations.
Here are some of their reasons why:
- My father died of cancer and my teenage daughter died hours after her initial diagnosis. As you can see, I have a personal interest in this study and welcome the opportunity to help.
- Although fundraising is important, this experience put me in touch with people on a person-to-person basis and made me feel like I was doing something instead of just throwing money at it.
- I'm really happy to enroll having just lost my dad and knowing that because of research like this my sister is doing better. I really see a huge importance in it.
- I have lost several people close to me from cancer, and I'd like to do something to contribute to the body of knowledge to fight this disease.
- Thank you for an opportunity to help and to be involved in the hopes that it could improve the odds for my boys.
- I am in good health and here is something I could really do to be a tiny bit of help!
- I have lost several friends and relatives to cancer, so I want to help.
- I lost my aunt to cancer. For the last few months, I have been trying to figure out a way to honor her memory. The best way I can honor her memory is by joining this study.
- This is important to me; my wife died of lung cancer (non-smoker) over three years ago.
- I am willing to do whatever I can to help with cancer research, I lost my twin sister to cancer.
- Although I'm not eligible as I am a breast cancer survivor, I emailed over 20 friends to encourage them to enroll.
- Thank you for your help, I have lost both parents to cancer and I would like to be a part of the research study to help someone else if I can.
- The study, to me, is just a wonderful once in a lifetime opportunity to actually jump in on the front lines in the battle against cancer. I just hope that my participation in the study will help somewhere along the line, some kind of answer be found, in the fight against cancer.
- As we've anticipated, it will be probably an hour of time every 2 years. I spend that much time waiting for red lights every year so to me, the commitment is minimal. The opportunity for return is big. So it's an excellent chance to get involved.
- Sometimes you feel helpless, but this is something you can do. It's such an easy thing to do to help. We're going to find a cure and preventive measures so our kids don't have to go through this.
- I'm a stage IV malignant melanoma survivor who participated in a clinical trial. Someone gave me a second chance with the opportunity to participate in research that led to that clinical trial. Now, you can be someone else's second chance by participating in CPS-3.
- If I can save one family from going through this...what I went through.
- If this study (CPS-3) can prevent one parent from getting a phone call like I got, I think the research will be worth it.
- To me it's what those of us who are NOT cancer survivors CAN DO. It's very hard to watch people you love and care about go through cancer. Caregivers, friends, neighbors, co-workers need "something to do" to feel like they are able to help. CPS-3 is that answer.
- My mom is a two-time cancer survivor, and I'm doing everything I can to make sure my children don't ever have to say that…I really, really believe this is part of the answer.
